The Foundation of Your Wardrobe: Start With Neutrals

If your wardrobe isn’t centered on neutral tones, you aren’t getting a lot of versatility and mileage out of your clothes. The great thing about neutrals is that they provide you with many options, as they can be mixed and matched easily with other accent colors for impact.

When you are selecting your neutral tones to anchor your wardrobe you want to use the ones that compliment our natural coloring. Depending on whether you are warm, or cool in your personal color harmony, choose tones that will accentuate your natural skin tone, hair and eye colors.



  • Neutrals for Cool Coloring
  • Black
  • Gray
  • Navy
  • Burgundy
  • Forest Green
  • Cherry Red
  • White


Neutrals for Warm Coloring

  • Coffee
  • Brown
  • Rust
  • Camel
  • Teal
  • Olive
  • Tomato Red
  • Cream

When selecting your wardrobe, choose quality fabrics in basic pieces like jackets, blouses, skirts and trousers. You will have more versatility with these basic pieces when you build your wardrobe on neutral tones.
